So lovely. I'd never had grilled figs before, but holy whoa, they were DELICIOUS. I didn't even have a grill--I just used a cast iron skillet. My only suggestion for improvement--go ahead and put the fig ON the bread with the cheese, instead of beside it. The combination of the cheese+bread+fig+balsamic is absolutely wild. Fresh mozzarella would also work nicely here. The figs are what make it.
